I had to read this based on the title alone, and it's a great book. Aven was born without arms and has moved to a western theme park with her adopted parents. So she has to make friends at her new school, where the kids don't quite understand how to deal with someone who is differently abled. A great cast of characters and a mystery add to this book's charm. I recommend this for ages 9-12
